Set Up

OTR target is 1.25’’ in diameter (31.75 mm). OTR target is 10 [math]\mu m[/math] thick Aluminium.

Determining if we are getting OTR

To determined if what we are seeing is OTR, we need to see a cone. OTR is polarized. If use a polarizer we can determined the cone we are seeing is polarized. Then we can be sure that we got OTR.

The distance from the center of the OTR target (also the center of the 6-way cross) to the closest position we place our first lenses is 13 cm.

Edge to edge OTR cone diameter size ([math]4\theta[/math] angle,[math]\theta=\frac{1}{\gamma} = \frac{1}{\frac{10}{0.511}}[/math] ) at this distance is 2.665 cm.

We need to put lenses or achromat to focus on infinity to see a cone. We had an lens telescope that can focus on infinity with diameter of 2.6 cm. We might be able to push this telescope to a distance closer that 13 mm. We might be able to push telescope to 12 cm distance, then we cone will have diameter of 2,46 cm. Then we can see all the cone. We should do an experiment on this next time.

Beam Line Alignment

From the March 3rd Run, we can see that the beam line is not aligned. We need to align it.

Equipments Needed

1) Laser beam. 2) Lase beam Stand. 3) Mirrors. 4) Crosses.
